Colin Kaepernick Wrote A Letter To Himself In Fourth Grade Predicting That He'd Become A Pro Football Player

The adorable, hand-scrawled letter you see above was splashed on the screen during last night's Sunday Night Football broadcast and was written by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick when he was in fourth grade. It's a motivational letter in which young Kaepernick lays out his plans for the future with surprising accuracy. He nailed the height prediction (Kaepernick is 6-foot-4) and was just a bit off on the weight (he is listed at 230 lbs.) And of course, there is the fact that he is currently throwing rockets as the starting quarterback for the 49ers, who do not suck.

We're not sure what became of the friends Kaepernick listed at the end of the letter, but we're just going to assume that Jason is an astronaut, Kyler is a fireman, Leo is an explorer, Spencer is a fighter pilot, Mark is a pro skateboarder, and Jacob is a doctor who fixes Koalas and also races go-karts.
